Chunk Wars


v0.9b now testing - check Update Log for more info

- Will require Minecraft 1.16

Description

Chunk Wars is a team mini-game for Minecraft.

It gives players a Minecraft-in-a-nutshell experience, within a chunk-inspired multiplayer battle arena.

Each of the Chunks is a hand built 16x16x16 taster experience of a specific biome and pre-generated structure or environment from the vanilla Minecraft world.

The game arena has been designed to retain the key features of structures and biomes while compressing the Minecraft experience down to 16x16x16 'Chunks'.

I recommend playing Chunk Wars with 2 teams of 4 players.

The game arena is balanced to create time and resource dependant strategic choices for teams of this size.

However, the game can be comfortably played and enjoyed with teams of 3~8 players, but this inevitably alters the push vs. hold gameplay dynamic.


Gameplay


The early phase of Chunk Wars offers teams a strategic PvE experience as they accumulate resources and plan their methods of attack through the arena.

As gameplay moves into the middle phase, teams gain access to enchanted weapons, advanced materials and potions.

Players try to deny these resources to their opposition as they begin to take part in PvP combat along the arena's natural MOBA-style lanes.

The end phase of the game takes on a hunt and destroy, thrust and parry feel as teams can gain increased manouverability while they try to break the bed of their opposition and defend their own Stronghold Chunk. The game ends when only members of one team remain alive in the arena.


All the resources you need to win Chunk Wars are clearly available inside or on the surface of the Chunks in plain sight - there are no deliberately hidden resources in the arena that you need to dig for.

You will see other resources on the outside skin of various Chunks - don't be fooled into thinking you should collect these resources though!

Grabbing them will be slower and less useful to your team than playing through the natural environment of the map. They are primarily for look and feel to give natural 'skin' to the Chunks.




( additional information - Chunk Wars blends the best elements of the popular Bed War, Attack-Defend and various PvP genres to create a fun and challenging new genre called Defend the Bed. )
- Read more about the Defend The Bed mini-game genre





Background

I thought of the concept for Chunk Wars in early 2012 and founded my All Your Blocks YouTube channel to share the idea, the development process, and gameplay with my friends.

After a long time away from Minecraft, I am back in 2020 to finish, release, and in future to update, the game.

A lot of thought has gone into designing the overall arena for this map and the detail within each Chunk.

As you will see from the screenshots, or by playing the game, there are structures and features in the arena that look like they could belong in a pre-generated vanilla Minecraft world.

This is deliberate - but these are not simply copies of naturally generated landscape, each of the 13 unique Chunks in the arena is hand built.




Additional Notes



Rules





1. Victory Conditions

1.1 - You win by breaking the other team's bed and then killing all your opponents.
1.2 - Victory is achieved when only players from one team remain alive in the arena.

2. Beds

2.1 - You must set your spawn point in your team's bed as soon as you arrive in your starting Stronghold Chunk.
2.2 - If you die and meet any of the following conditions at the time of your death, you are out of the game;
- having failed to set your bed spawn,
- your bed is obstructed,
- you have no bed to spawn in.
2.3 - You are not allowed to idle on the respawn screen for the purpose of circumventing rules. (can fix this server-side with doImmediateRespawn gamerule)
2.4 - You may not craft beds, or break or move your own team's bed.
2.5 - If you recover your bed after your opponents have stolen it, or steal the other team's bed - you may place that bed in the marked bed spot in any Stronghold Chunk and use it again as your bed.

3. General

3.1 - The game is played in Survival Mode.
3.2 - No breaking or placing of blocks at or below the marked Bedrock level.
3.3 - No placing of blocks beyond 8 blocks from the outer edge of any Chunk. (will add barrier blocks to control this!)
3.4 - No vertical bridging or pillaring of more than 32 blocks from the Arena's ground level. (will add barrier blocks to control this!)
3.5 - No breaking of the Obsidian pillars in the central End Chunk. (may keep or remove this rule, dependant upon being able to deactivate the creation of nether portals with a gamerule or something server side, will also need to )

4. Miscellaneous

4.1 - No creation of portals to The Nether or The End.

5. Extended Game Modes

5.0 - Additional game modes are selected from the Chunk Wars lobby system and can be toggled on and off (full details to follow here in future)


Strategy

Whether it is going for fast Diamonds, grabbing Potions or rushing your opponents' Stronghold - there are a number of proven strategies available to teams playing Chunk Wars. I hope you'll discover and invent even more new strategies that I haven't even thought of yet.




Jargon Buster

Chunk - A Minecraft Chunk is actually 16x16x256 blocks,further info here.
MOBA - Multiplayer Online Battle Arena
PvE - Player versus Environment
PvP - Player versus Player


What's next for Chunk Wars?

I want your feedback to help improve Chunk Wars further - please let me know what you think about the map. Look at the screenshots, download the map and play it with your friends. I'm interested to hear comments on the design and gameplay.

I already have ideas for a number of extended game modes - these will make some items and resources available to teams right from the start. These will be added as an update after the first release version has been fully playtested. If you have any feedback or ideas for me, please let us know in the comments section below.

There will be a public download link up again relatively soon (hopefully within a few months). I'm about to kick off an intense period of 'semi-open' beta-testing with selected groups of players in order to gather some qualitative feedback on the map. Once that is complete, I'll consider how to release it for everyone to play!

Most epic map IVE ever seen! I'll edit this post soon... Cool so far :D
EDIT 1: Ive found a new bug, when you get into the man spawn lobby, you can break the glass. I would switch it to glowstone or something that cant be broken... cause my friend got into the end. :D
EDIT 2: Maybe a singleplayer version.. that would be cool :D

Hey Squideh, thanks for your comments!

1 - Yep, this needs fixing. I'm working on a complete redesign of the spawn area at the moment to tie-in with the launch of the 2-team version of the map. The new spawn will also take advantage of a bunch of new snapshot and command block features, hope you like it when I release in a month or so.

2 - You can play a 1v1v1v1 free for all version of the map, I've had quite a bit of fun doing this. Will definitely think about editing/creating a single player 'adventure' version of the map once I'm happy with the team-based release version, cool idea, cheers!

That's useful feedback and interesting you should mention that; I've had some similar ideas from other testers and have already added two new Village features to the old 'Farm' Chunk. Look out for those in the next open beta version, which I'll probably be releasing next week.

I won't be doing an Aether Chunk as it's not vanilla Minecraft - and I've also decided against including a Mountain Chunk in the current version. However, I have been thinking about whether to include additional 'natural' arena height in the map, so that might yet feature in a future version. Thanks for your feedback and ideas - I really appreciate them!

Looks well designed and seems like it could be fun with lots of friends :)

You should check out Seth Bling's Custom Shops because you could maybe add custom villager shops to allow players to earn rewards and special items to fight the enemy.

11/19/2012 6:37 pm
Level 47 : Master Architect
AllYourBlocks
That's a cool idea - thank you for your feedback!

When I was designing Chunk Wars I did consider using custom shops to include Villagers with preset trades in the Farm/Cave Chunk. I ended up ruling it out though because I wanted to keep it as close to vanilla in 'gameplay feel' as possible. I also thought about having vanilla Villagers in the map - but decided against it as it was too fiddly to implement and didn't add as much to the gameplay as the custom shops. So, sadly it fell by the wayside :(

However! Your timely reminder has made me think of recycling the idea for my next map, which is already in the works, thank you! I could use more people like you to provide thoughtful and constructive criticism on my future projects. Would you be interested in taking part in the closed beta test of my new mini-game when I am ready with it?

p.s. I like your Chaos Crypt - keep up the good work!
